Yeah, that is pretty much what everyone thinks/says before they lose their shorts in the stock market. It is a $9 a share, it couldn't possibly go down anymore!

You are assuming that RJ will return to a 20 goal scorer. He barely did that last season and hasn't done anything this season to suggest that was a fluke. What you are asking for may never come. While I don't find it likely, we could very well be looking at the new 12-15 goal RJ grinder.

The front office better be looking at this situation very closely and not using the "I have faith" method we have used in the past.
